All federal aid and many scholarships require a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There are a variety of student loans available to graduate students.

Complete the FAFSA at and include the Mizzou student code: 002516.

By utilizing a combination of loans, most eligible students will see an initial award offer up to their cost of attendance with the following loans:

  • Federal Stafford Unsubsidized Loan
  • Graduate PLUS Loan (requires credit check)
  • Private Education Loan

Interest rates are market-based and will be determined by June 30. Loan terms and conditions are available at

Each federal loan is charged an origination fee by the federal government, which reduces the actual loan amount you receive.
